Irina Ovrutsky is the Chicago-based mama behind the charmingly chic kid’s brand, Lola + the Boys. If you aren’t familiar they have some of the coolest clothes for boys and girls — everything in the shop packs a serious dose of style. Irina wanted the clothes to be adorable and functional so littles can do their thing but still maintain their cool status. Her love for fashion predates the debut of Lola + the Boys, as a model she realized that she loved expressing herself through clothes and felt empowered by it.
Her initial plan was to open a women’s boutique, but her daughter Lola’s birth sent her down another path. Irina discovered that she was passionate about making her daughter’s clothes and you could say the rest is history! Now a mom to three babes, Irina loves the moments motherhood brings and the inspiration that comes along with it. You can snag these pieces at Nordstrom, LolaandtheBoys.com, they recently opened Unicorn World in Chicago, and is carried and retailers across the country, she’s killing it!
Little’s Names & Ages: Lola Simone, Age 9, Shia Alan, Age 7 & Julian Miles, Age 5.

Activity You Love to do With Your Littles: Anything outside since Chicago isn’t that lucky with weather, we take advantage of staying outdoors. We love to go swimming and hit the parks! We are all doing group tennis now at EBC so that will be a fun sport to play as a family!
Your Secret Obsession When You Get an Hour to Yourself: I love to work out, so in the morning the hour I have always goes towards that. I rarely get much time to myself between running the online shop and managing three kids so if I manage to get the kiddies to bed and I’m alone I do love my guilty pleasures like E! News and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Closet Staple That You Can’t Live Without: White Sneakers! I am obsessed with white kicks. Running around with three kids I need to stay comfy so I alternate between my Chanel White Mesh High-tops and my Hologram Edition Stan Smiths.
